    Haibike noisy

    I have a haibike with a Bosch motor and it's pretty noisy in lower gears

    Are all Bosch motor noisy, or could it be a derailleur adjustment issue.

    The noise is when the motor assists.

    Thank you

    Easy for you to say. Once i felt the power of the e bike, there's no going back to my regular Enduro.

    I ride twice the downhill in a week.

    Get a real motorcycle that makes real motorcycle sounds. At least you won't sound like a pussy while being lazy.

    Not sure but get her tuned up. UCI announcement that rainbow stripes will be awarded at first world championships in mt st Anne next year .
    You may find something about your Bosch on here though
    https://www.emtbforums.com/threads/new-motor.1844/

    Looks like a couple Bosch threads on there. One guy got all the bearings made for the motors to service them. I guess theyíre a funny size so he ended up getting some built with a 1000 piece order now he has a business to service the Bosch and Yamaha motors and sounds like heíll soon have the parts for shimano and Brose . Motors supposedly last a long time but finding bearings is/was difficult. Not saying itís your bearings, idk, good luck

    Ya chances are it isnít the bearings. Maybe thatís just the way they are. Some companies are louder than others. Iíve heard of some shimano motors being louder than other shimano motors too. Someone on that forum can probably help point you in the right direction. Thereís a Haibike thread that gets bumped quite often as well

    Are you sure you aren't just a little bit ashamed of the noise that all that power is making?

    I rode a eMX bike recently, really quiet.
    If these had been around 30 years ago, I donít think weíd have nearly the problems with access that we have now.

    I don't really agree....but I did laugh.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    Huh? I don't follow. It's been difficult to get access for regular bikes, why / how would that have helped anything?

    He means motos have lost a lot of access over that time frame.

    and its poetic in a way, as eMTB's are likely going to be the downfall of MTB access.

    I think noise has always been most peopleís biggest problem with MX Bikes. If they had had been quiet, I donít think weíd have lost nearly as much access.

    Within the first 450 or 500 miles, you will get some noise from the chain rubbing against the inboard side of a plastic guide on the tensioner gear on an EX1 drive train in lower gears. It wears down after that and you won't get any more rubbing or noise.

    Thanks, that's exactly what o think it is.
    I can hear the noise when i pedal with the motor off.

    I couldn't see any way to adjust the tensioner guide.

    They design them specifically to be obnoxious for 500 miles in an attempt to annoy you enough to start riding real bikes again.
